set_name


Description:

public void set_name (string name)

Widgets can be named, which allows you to refer to them from a CSS file.

You can apply a style to widgets with a particular name in the CSS file. See the documentation for the CSS syntax (on the same page as the docs for StyleContext).

Note that the CSS syntax has certain special characters to delimit and represent elements in a selector (period, #, >, *...), so using these will make your widget impossible to match by name. Any combination of alphanumeric symbols, dashes and underscores will suffice.

Parameters:

this

a Widget

name

name for the widget
